The BBC unveils a series of Glastonbury-themed programming to air on the weekend that the festival was due to take place.

The BBC has announced plans to broadcast The Glastonbury Experience over the weekend that the festival was supposed to take place.

The iconic event was due to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year with headline performances from the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar but was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of the BBC's celebration of all things Glastonbury, three 90-minute live programmes will air on BBC Two on Friday, June 26, Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28 featuring some iconic performances from across the years, including Amy Winehouse (2007), Arctic Monkeys (2013) and Rolling Stones (2013).

Full sets from artists will be presented on BBC Two and BBC Four across the weekend, including David Bowie's 2000 performance, which will mark the first time the set has ever been broadcast in full on TV.

On iPlayer, 60 sets will be made available for streaming in full from 10am on Thursday, June 25, while on Radio 2, Jo Whiley and Zoe Ball will front special Glasto shows.

"There are so many memorable sets being played across the BBC over what would have been our 50th anniversary weekend," said Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis.

"Personally, I'm looking forward to a weekend of reflecting on the history of our festival and going back to some classic performances from David Bowie, Adele, REM, Beyonce, The Rolling Stones, Jay-Z, Billie Eilish and lots more. Me and my dad will definitely be watching!"

All successful ticket holders for the cancelled 2020 festival will be offered the opportunity to roll over their ticket for guaranteed admission to next year's event.
